How to use Pornworks To Generate Realistic Images From 2D Drawings
In this guide, we’ll show you how the Pornworks.AI tool can help with bringing your favorite 2D characters to life! Follow the steps closely if you want to get the best possible results.
- You’ll first need to scout for a 2D or 2.5D character that you’d like to enhance with the Pornworks AI tool.
- Next, select a clear image of that character and upload it to the Pornworks AI using the Choose File button under Reference image. Be sure to select a clear image that shows the character in a more static pose. This way, it will be easier for the AI to build off of the pose.
- Now, you can begin to add little enhancements to your prompt. This will help with ensuring that your image appears as close to the 2D version as possible, while still having a realistic look. The best way to do this is by acquainting yourself with the Denoising tool.
Denoising works as a way to make an image appear very close to the reference, or highly deviated from the reference. In this case, you want a realistic version of your 2D character, so it’s best to use a lower Denoising strength. For example, if you want the image to match the outfit of your 2D character as close as possible, leave the Denoising strength on a figure like 4.
- Another stat you might want to check out is the CFG. This advanced setting allows you to determine how closely the AI will follow your prompt (not reference image). With Pornworks AI, the prompt that is inputted will be followed more closely when you’ve got a higher CFG. However, this also comes with a risk of the AI not closely following your reference image.
If you’re looking for a more Cosplay type of aesthetic on the realistic version of a 2D character, it’s worth increasing the CFG slightly. By default, it should be on 7. You can turn that number up a slight bit. At 9, you’ll notice that the character looks more realistic, and her outfit looks like something that you can piece together in the real world.
A higher CFG comes with a bigger chance of following your prompt, but it also affects how well the AI follows the reference you’ve used. Finding the perfect balance between CFG and Denoising is an important part to getting this right.
In the example, we’ve used you’ll find that a Denoising of 4 combined with a CFG of 13 creates a perfectly clean version of the character, complete with a similar pose and outfit.
This type of principle should be applied further if you want to ensure that your character matches in pose and aesthetic. If the character wears glasses, be sure to include “glasses” in your prompt if you want them to appear. On the other hand, you can add “glasses” in the negative prompt if you don’t want them to appear in there.
For the example above, we included some specific details that made it possible for the character to closely match the image. First, we needed to make sure that it came out in a good quality. This step is helped by the Pornworks tool by default. You’ll notice that in the Negative Prompt section, there’s a list of words/attributes that are not considered when generating an image. This makes it easier to get something that looks natural. Next, the actual prompt.
Here is the list of words added to the prompts in this article for a good image:
“1girl, best quality, ultra-detailed, masterpiece, finely detail, highres, 8k wallpaper, glasses” the final word “glasses” is highly important for the girl here.
The reference wears glasses, but if that word is not included, you might find a distorted version of her face where the AI can’t decide whether she should be wearing glasses or not. You can also do the opposite and add “glasses” to the negative prompt. That way, she can appear with a smoother look overall. Also, be sure to include details you’d like to see for your character in the prompt. A higher CFG will allow those details to be reflected in a much better way.
Here are some examples of what you can achieve by inputting a good prompt combined with a reference. To top it off, a lower Denoising effect (4-6) combined with a slightly higher CFG (12+) will create an image that looks realistic, while still retaining the aesthetic of your 2D character.
Be sure to experiment a bit, but know that applying the core principles explained here will save you a lot of time.
